You can't think that way, just have a happy day with them every day and enjoy what you have....When the time has come, just be there with them IMO that was the ultimate 'proof' of my love I could offer Maxx is to hold him secured in my Arms that day at the Drs office as hard as it is, but I never left him alone and I didn't want to the last minutes neither.

I have fun spoiling them of course but I think it's like a parents worry...you dont want anything to happen to your children.

I agree Angel. I hear so often that people "can't do it" so the dog suffers on and on. For me, I love them so much I put them before my grief. I bravely held them in my arms with tears streaking down my cheeks and whispered in their ears, how much I loved them, and how proud I was to have shared my life with them. Every time I think about it, I still cry but I wouldn't change that fact. I couldn't stand the thought of my darling dogs being alone or with a stranger in their final moments.

I hope that now as a few more days have passed you are finding it slightly easier and that you can breath better at least.

I'm so sorry, I lost my dog over two years ago and it still hurts sometimes. I know how you feel.

Congrats on the baby though.. That is wonderful!

I want to THANK YOU ALL from the bottom of my heart for the support I received here since I lost Maxx!!!!!!!!

Its going to be 2 weeks this weekend and the tears are getting less and the memories remain and that's good that way.

But its moments like seeing this video YouTube - Shelter Dogs: Why did you leave me here?
I just cried (yes ok baby hormones involved BUT) I cried.....I'd give ANYTHING in the world if I could have my Maxx back for just one day, how people can just dump their pet's in shelters or out here where I live on the Rd I will NEVER understand.

Even if we'd get evacuated for a storm or whatever I'd NEVER go nowhere w/out my dogs. Shoot I moved around between here & overseas TWICE with the Army and my dogs been where - Right there by my side EVERY single time!!!
